Catch up on the latest news from Liverpool Cathedral for Sunday, 30th January 2022

Welcome from Dean Sue

A very warm welcome to this week's e-news. January is drawing to a close and as we begin to see glimmers of hope in the garden and in the changing light we in the Churches liturgical year bring the Epiphany Season to a close with the Epiphany Carol Service on Sunday afternoon at 3pm. This service is a beautiful service and will be led by the Cathedral choir.

On Sunday Morning we will also be celebrating Candlemas and the concrete image suggested for this Sunday through the Exploring the Sunday Gospel material found at ( is light. Both services will focus on light and God’s gift of light to the world.

Lord Jesus Christ,

you bring light in darkness

and hope in despair.

Send your light into our lives,

so we may live to praise your name;

through time and through eternity.



Canon Mike is presiding and preaching at Holy Trinity, Southport this coming Sunday morning (30th).
